I live right smack dab in the middle of "Jade Helm" territory and I hate to break it to you guys, but there's absolutely nothing untoward going on in the great "hostile" state of Texas.

Nothing to see here, people - move along.

The craziest ones are all FBI agents!!!
The U.S knows how to fight factionalism.

So what do you think about 'Operation Jade Helm '?

All I know is that I put absolutely nothing past the government of the US, however I do not think Obama could get enough supporters to pull off Martial Law! Even his own secret service people wouldn't take a bullet for him! Look how many security incidents at the White House there has been since he moved in, lol!

Mucho info here:

Jade Helm 15 - Walmart prison camps, etc

Please show proof that any one of these shooters were right wing associated. It's one thing to flap ones gums, quite another to substantiate it.

That is because they want you to believe that. JH was to enable the military storm troopers to move undetected through the population. They are there, you just don't see them. They are camoflagued. Why there is probably one peeping in your window right now. That bush in your yard may not be what you think it is. Danger lurks around every turn. Be aware. Buy a gun!

I hate to break it to you but ALL the recent mass shooters have been Democrats.

I know this might surprise you, but his favoribility rating is at 46%. And the "security incidents"? That has more to do with whackadoodles being whackadoodles.

1. I would doubt that the secret service has much love for Obama.

2. Of course a president could call martial law.

a. to enforce martial law, one would need a police and military force to enact it
b. most of the police and military would not comply with such an order
c. most of the police and military oppose Obama and would most likely turn on him

3. Most of those who view Obama favorably are not in the police or military

4. Most of those who view Obama favorably do not have guns

5. The flip side is 54% do not view Obama favorably.

6. An occupation force has to eat, sleep and drink water eventually. Occupying a nation of 350 million would require a force much larger than the US could muster.

7. No force would engage the US military or police initially in marshal law. Allow a more powerful entity to occupy, settle in, and make the superior weapons useless.

8. A call for "martial law" by Obama would undoubtedly result in his being escorted from the White House in chains.

9. We are not going to have "martial law" in my lifetime- I think it is a very far fetched, unlikely scenario, barring a major, major natural disaster.
